There have been two fine studies of this family in the standard regional compendia: one relatively new, the other a classic. Robert Charles Anderson, The Great Migration Begins: Immigrants to New England, 1620–1633, 3 vols. (Boston: New England Historic Genealogical Society, 1995), 2:708-11, gives a documented summary of the American records for the immigrant. Much of this material is repeated in Robert Charles Anderson, The Winthrop Fleet: Massachusetts Bay Company Immigrants to New England, 1629–1630 (Boston: New England Historic Genealogical Society, 2012), 319-22. Thomas Bellows Wyman, The Genealogies and Estates of the Town of Charlestown in the County of Middlesex and Commonwealth of Massachusetts, 1629–1818, 2 vols. (Boston: David Clapp & Son, 1879), 1:381-94, is more informative on the second and third generations of the family.
